The accommodation arrangment was excellent  as well as the standard.

Language and Culture

Since everyone spoke English so I did not ahve much problems with understanding people: however, it was a nice way to learn some Swedish words too.

Leisure time

Yes the social activities were arranged  by the administrantion at KI.













































I was really amazed by the teacher exchange program and how much you learn in every aspect of the academics as well as in the clinics. I hope this remains a learning effort for everyone which can be brought back home.

Other activities

Activities were more on clinical teaching level as well as in basic academics. Future collaborations with universities should be there which helps in learning more about the education not just  academically as well as clinically and helps in researching new ideas. 


Information was given by Altamash Institute of Dental Medicine which had been provided  by Karolinska Institute prior to visit.

Altamash Institute had informed me about the teacher exchange program and I applied and got selected.


I was influenced by the new techniques of clinical management.


Teaching activities was above the standard of our teaching methods and had learned alot of new methods which i would  like to take back home. Some similarities were there on the basic levels but still needed to improve more on higher levels in our university.

Teacher, student and patient relationship was excellent and the protocols followed were impressive.

Teaching hours

Teaching was 24  hours per week.
